<p>And something the US should not be doing in a world cup. Play tight, simple, safe on the international level. I'm not sure how this team gets out of the group stage - and that's not due to the sum of their collective talent - for me, it comes down to Berhalter. He seems out of his element with player selection, tactics, and understanding for an international team.</p>
<p>Yeah I am concerned if Berhalter tries to go back to having too complex a system causing people to hesistate and overthink. </p>
<p>He had simplified things and we had success. <br />
Not sure how this game plan helps us in our final tuneups. Losing is one thing looking blah is something else.<br />
Greg just unleash the players like Bruce did in 02 and it will be ok.<br />
I am torn if we get out of the group.</p>
<p>T Wales<br />
L England<br />
Toss up v Iran but if the game opens up with both teams needing to win we might be ok.</p>
Crummy passing on a crap field. Zimm & Long selling their passes short. Adams doesnt look good. Dont know if it is nerves, tactics or general quality, but wouldnt be too confident of this line-up against any of our WC opponents.
Weak showing by us
So much lost possession in our half
Too much passing around aimlessly
Missing Robinson big time and musah
Bring in Sargent for hold up
First goal I'll give them a pass cause that was one of the funkiest flick-ons I've ever seen from a corner. I'm surprised Callens was ready for it because there's no way that was off the training ground. Maybe not quite so much an excuse for falling asleep at the back post again on the second one though...
The team so desperately needs goal production from anyone not named Lewis Morgan. Luqui has cooled down to near ice cold temperatures. Clark has been an incredible disappointment this season. Need guys like that to pick up their game in the playoffs.
Most annoyed by the flat 30 minute malaise to start and the bad D by Morgan on goal 2
Morgan was not Morgan today
poor finishing on top of bad luck great D by Callens
What was the game plan?
Where was tolkin and Duncan?
bizarro first goal - maybe coronel should come out more or Elias tracks back but such an odd odd goal - almost like a deflection goal
2nd one was crap - not enough pressure by 3 players
Lewis Morgan HAS TO DO BETTER DEFENSE on that one
He had time to GET GOALSIDE and chose not to and try to be clever by bumping him from behind
Nyrb can definitely compete with Dortmund. It comes down to money, who can offer the most clear pathway to becoming a professional soccer player and other amenities like schooling and dorming. Nyrb could offer a superior package to any youth player on those items. There is no excuse.
Geo Reyna left NYC to go to small city western Germany/i.e. Dortmund and his dad was general manager for NYCFC.
Interesting to look at stats
I dont think we were terrible with the 55 percent possession we had not good but not terrible
Xg nyrb 1.2 Philly 0.8
8 rb shots with 4! Blocked 3sog 0 goal
Phill 3 sog 2 goal
They are lethal on counter and strikers who can finish
If we see them again we will be a little different with CCJ Duncan and full Reyes
Also maybe Luq can get slightly into form
Monwell is trash.
Game was over when Reyes came out.
Edelman reads the game very well.
Luqui has disappeared.
Tolkin always has the dirtiest uniform and wins infinitely more aerial duels than he has any right to.
Union's roster is physically large. We looked like U17s playing against grown men.
I dont think Manoel is trash but he is not an upgrade over klimala . Project for next year which is not what we need this year
We were not bad Philly was lethal 3 chances 2 goals.
Reyes bring out hurt
Sean Nealis stood up and owns both goals
We had 4 chances which against Philly is not bad it is just our finishing is not lethal
I liked that we tried to pass around a bit
Duncan- what was that pass
Those are the wrong old highlights from SKC to try to emulate
So much for your starting role
Im glad he tried to apologize and did so after
League will probably suspend him for 3 games.
